The area
Address
Neighborhood: Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

Unprepossessing exterior but if you're passing, it's worth popping inside. It's quite dark but as you get used to it and look up, you'll see a lovely ceiling fresco. The walls are also adorned with some lovely paintings.

When the church was built by the Badoer family in the 9th Century, it was known as St Caterina Martire. When it was rebuilt in 1054, it was dedicated to the newly canonized Pope Leo IX who supported independence of Venice churches. The church has four side altars. An interesting point of interest is the one of the lady holding a baby sitting on a throne. I could not find any information on this particular statue. If you are in the area, stop at St. Leo’s and admire its interior beauty.
